Wow! I've been coming to HHI for a week every summer for 31 years and I have somehow cheated myself out of playing what I believe is THE BEST $70 course on the island!

Course conditions were perfect. The golf course is laid out perfectly. Risk/reward shots are all over the place. Everything is just so scenic. I was truly sad when my round ended.

My only suggestion -- and this isn't just for the Cupp staff -- is to suspend the cart-path only rule once the course dries out. We had a lot of rain the night before I played, so I get that we had to start with cart-path only, but by the 10th hole, everything was pretty much back to normal, so even a 90-degree rule would have been helpful (cart-path only rules are necessary, but they do slow down play and make club selection iffy at times).

Palmetto Hall has become my go to when planning my golf on vacation due to location, course quality, and value. This trip was no different- the course was in excellent condition. Both courses are great but I do prefer the Cupp layout a little over the Arthur Hills.

Good, Fair layout. First oersknoff as a single and had to navigatate the mowers before being set loose to play.

Wide variety of holes that were fun to play, however nothing truly memorable.

Off course amenities were lacking- not a place to spend extra time before or after the round.

I had a great time playing this course. This was my first time at this course. It's a manageable course if you play it safe. Unfortunately, thunderstorms got in the way at the 10th tee. I asked for a rain Che k for the back nine and the staff was accommodating. I'll return in a few weeks to finish out my round.

Was able to play for 1/3 the normal cost because of aeration the day before. Regardless the course is a step above most HHI courses. Shame on me for not having a course guide so i'd know what to avoid. Scenically could not ask for more. Will definitely play again.

It was my first round on the Cupp course, and I enjoyed it. I liked the layout, and we weren't bogged down to a 4.5 hr round of "resort" golf. I will remember the nuances of some of the holes for next time!

I have played at a few other courses on HHI and this time is hard for the courses. This was in top shape even though I heard they don't water. A challenging course with water and sand. Greens were slow for the first half but wind blew them dry from the rain the night before and were reasonable by 4p. Pace was good and hardly anybody out on course. Staff were pleasant and helpful! Is a semi-private course so the members had the first 1/2 of the day for themselves which worked out well.

Disappointing services. Course layout was great; challenging but fair. The condition of the cart paths, transition areas were rough. It needs some cleaning and care. But on Hilton Head, you would expect better amenities for your vacation dollar. No water in the coolers, soda machines didn't work, eight bucks for a bag of balls.. Cart was ragged. There are plenty of courses to visit here. They need to make more of an effort.

We played today at Palmetto Hall Plantation on the Cupp course. We got a good deal on Golf Now and there was hardly anyone around so we got on one hour earlier and played virtually with no one around. The course is challenging and enjoyable. Play from the tees that enable you to have chances for some birdies and pars. Would return at these prices.
